So I was sitting and watching the US/Brazil soccer game on Sunday when MrBunny came in and requested to watch something else.
Being the fabulous wife I am, I set the game to record and let him have the tv.
After a day avoiding my phone (CNN has an annoying habit of spoiling things with their push notifications that I always forget to disable before sporting events) and the internet I sat down to watch the recorded game.
I can’t repeat the string of words that escaped my mouth when I saw the officiating fiasco that resulted in Marta scoring on a redo of a penalty kick for Brazil. Horse hockey.
Regular time ends and it’s still tied at 1-1. My dvr records just long enough to catch the first goal for Brazil in extra time. Even though I had opted for the additional 30 minutes of recording time it wasn’t enough.
So off I went to internet, downtrodden because I was relatively certain that Brazil had ended up with the win. This US team has been very hot and cold lately and I just knew that they’d gone cold. Imagine my very excited surprise when I discovered that not only had the US evened it up during extra time but pulled off a win with penalty kicks.
Once I saw that, I had to go find video of Wombach’s goal that sent it to penalty kicks.
And I came across this video.
It is so nice to see people get excited for women’s sports. Hopefully that excitement will continue through this afternoon’s game and if providence is on our side, a final game resulting in a World Cup title for the US Women.
